President Trump: Child Separation – Cages Were Built by Obama 4/9/19. Speaking with reporters in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump repeatedly stated migrants who were caught crossing the border were put in “cages” and separated from their families when Barack Obama was president.
“Obama separated the children, by the way. Just so you understand, President Obama separated the children,” Trump said. “Those cages that were shown, I think they were very inappropriate. They were built by President Obama’s administration, not by Trump.
